Newlyweds are being encouraged to consider Kenya as their romantic honeymoon destination by the country’s tourist board.
Officials claim that the East African nation provides an “unforgettable” experience with its combination of 300 miles of beaches and various safari or adventure options on its wildlife-filled plains.
The regional director of the Kenya Tourist Board for the UK and Ireland, Angie Sloan, also picked hot-air balloon rides, seeing the sun set over the Indian Ocean, boat trips at Lake Nakuru and sea-life spotting at the Watamu Marine Reserve as highlights.
She claims that Kenya can be one of the most romantic locations in the world for that first holiday as a married couple, with luxury lodges in national parks, high-end resorts on the coast and boutique hotels in Nairobi all on offer.
The country is being marketed as ideal for nature and wildlife lovers, adventure enthusiasts, outdoor explorers and safari seekers as well as couples who want the rest and relaxation on white sandy beaches that is usually associated with honeymoons.
And with a host of flights available from airports across the UK, including London Heathrow and Gatwick, and a range of deals at different prices, the tourist board is keen to see as many people as possible exploring Kenya on their honeymoon.
